Default Ethiopian chronograph?

So, not to drag the old thread out but has anyone shot and chronographed their 30.06 Ethiopian yet? As I mentioned in a prior post, it's recoil was noticeably sharper than my 168 CC reloads.

Just looking for number, either straight out or compared to HXP or other Garand-capable ammo.

Thank you,

grumpa72

Receiver some today from LAX. 1975 dated from the couple I looked at. If weather holds plan to chronograph a couple clips in the next day or two.

Has anybody tried this stuff out? I'm looking to get surplus for my new 308 Garand, but haven't bought surplus ammo in years. Is this stuff good and safe?

When it first came available last year, some people ran tests on it. It was found to be slightly hotter than Greek surplus, but within acceptable tolerances. I wouldn't use it to compete with, but good for plinking. Non corrosive. It worked fine in the M1, but some had issues with the case size when using it with a 1903.

The clips are hit or miss (when sold in clips). A lot of them are the French clips that have a bad reputation. Some were painted US surplus clips.

I have nothing but good things to say about the 30.06 that was out a while back. Good to shoot.

no experience with .308

Ok thanks guys. I see on the listing that it says it will attract a magnet, so I'm guessing that ranges that don't allow steel core won't allow this stuff. That seems to be the bigger issue with the European stuff.

OK, I'll bite.
What are you saying?
Why would you post a message like that?
